Subtle colours, minimal detailing, functional features, and the use of handloom cotton and linen are all the right reasons for us to order our next shirt and kurta from Dhatu, an online menswear label which is all about sustainable, timeless, and long-lasting apparel.
On the e-store are shirts in black, white, red, olive, grey, indigo, khaki, and brown shades. The shirts are good for dressy and casual affairs and feature subtle details like pleats, micro polka, pinstripes, and checks which look pleasing to the eye. Some of Dhatu's shirts also feature a very useful anti-split placket which means no skin-show between buttons and an anti-flip pocket which helps in securing our eyewear. The Latitude Shirt in indigo would be our first pick from its collection. Prices for Dhatu's shirts start at INR 1,660.
Cotton, linen, and Ikat kurtas at Dhatu are a worthy buy too. We like how the kurtas feature achkan, angrakha, and asymmetric styles along with the more popular solid and striped designs. The kurtas are all great for upcoming festive occasions and starting at INR 2,100, they don't cost a bomb, as well.
Another impressive piece of apparel at Dhatu is the geometric tapered jeans in blue and back that's made with 100% cotton denim and has an eye-catching geometric pattern running from the knees below. It's a great way to add some pomp to the bottom half of our outfit, which more often than not, is plain-looking. These jeans are priced at INR 2,400.
